You can also drink the tea cold.

It actually comes out cheaper per pound to buy that, though you have to buy twice as much - you will use it - this "Corona Real" 8-ounce size is hardly anything.

Although there are no directions on the package, the recipe is easy to find on the internet.

The cost is reasonable. I buy this stuff in bulk at the flea market in my city where it costs me $6 per pound and they sell it from a small bin. This compares with the price it goes for retail (bulk) in Mexico ($3.75/pound or about 100 pesos/kg) in the major cities' open markets. This stuff is double that price plus shipping which seems reasonable to me considering it is packaged, handled and transported through the distribution chain, rather than dumped from a flea market bin where hygiene might be an issue for some.

I think, though that all the Mexico bulk, this stuff, and US bulk flea market stuff comes from the same place, and starts with the same hygiene, so, you might consider the Organic version sold by Amazon for one pound bulk USDA inspected Davidson's Herbal Pure Organic Hibiscus currently around $11. It actually comes out cheaper per pound to buy that, though you have to buy twice as much - you will use it - this "Corona Real" 8-ounce size is hardly anything. I buy 2-3 pounds at a time. Besides, the Organic stuff I'd go for qualifies for free Super Saver Shipping on your order, but this Corona Real stuff from the MexGrocer charges $6 shipping regardless, from a brokerage company that is into putting every cheap dried up product under the Sun and provides no quality information. So it might be a no-brainer to pay less for twice as much and get the organic product from an established company that makes specialty herbal teas their only business. (No I have nothing to do with them and didn't know about the competing product until Amazon's software recommended it to me and I checked it out).

Hibiscus has been widely consumed in the USA in the packaged tea market for a long time. It is the main ingredient of many Lipton, Celestial Seasonings, etc. herbal teas.

Product arrived promptly and the hibiscus is of good quality. I have made many evening teas with this, also, I brewed a new beer using the hibiscus and it was delicious and pink! Some complained about price, I found it to be reasonable. Thanks for a solid product.

This item was exactly what i expected! It comes a little strong at first, but once you get the right tip, it's a delightful "ice tea" to chill around... Thank you!

Hibiscus has suddenly become popular in the US as a medicinal herbal tea. It's been around in Mexico for centuries.

This is what's used to make the fabulous 'fresh water' or auga fresca called simply Jamaica in Mexico. It's a natural diurectic, which is why studies are showing it effective in the treatment of high blood pressure because of that (I am not making any medical claims, do NOT treat yourself without seeing a doctor!).

It's drunk cold in Mexico and still my favorite way to consume it. The price given by MexGrocer is terrible, it's more for shipping than the item itself, when combined, it's almost criminal. Do yourself a favor and look for the hibiscus teas available here or go to the latin section of a grocery store, it will be less than half the price.

That said, if you're not a native Mexican, you may want to know how to prepare this drink.

Agua de Jamaica:

Take 2 cups of the rinsed flowers, add 6 cups of water and place in a saucepan on the stove. Bring to a boil, then lower the flame to simmer and let cook for about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to steep for another 10-20 minutes. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a pitcher. Add 4 cups of water and about 3/4 cup of sugar or the equivalent of simple syrup or a sugar-free sweetener.

Pour over ice and serve.

I discovered Hisbiscus tea while on a mission trip to Mexico. Although there are no directions on the package, the recipe is easy to find on the internet. The leaves make a delicious, refreshing drink.

I guess you could just drink the tea once you have brewed these blossoms. I prefer adding sugar and chilling it to make a great warm weather drink that can also be used as the base for jamaica margaritas.
